Thanks for positng that link. A great CF discussion.
What a world to live in: All these 1976 versions of Crazy Fingers.
An embarrassment of riches.

While partial to the much ballyhooed 6/14 version

(there was a quality to 6/76 that went away forever when it stopped being 6/76; June sounds to me like Jerry, fresh from not touring w/ the band for quite awhile, was blown away by the power of the new Blues For Allah material *while performing it*)

this stunning 7/13 version has the 'outro' jam perfect: structured, thematically linked to the main body but also exploring new space. No spacey noodling here. Always thought CF was a great potential launch pad ala Playin', but it never turned out that way.
